Hailing from Western Sydney, Becca Hatch has made a name for herself as one of Australia’s most promising R&B talents at just 19 years old. She was selected as the winner of Triple J’s Unearthed High Indigenous Initiative in 2017 and has since impressed us with a string of releases including ‘2560’, ‘Girl Like Me’ and a smooth rendition of John Farnham’s ‘Burn For You’ for Like A Version. With a sound anchored in R&B, Becca’s sound lends itself to her Samoan and Indigenous heritage producing a unique, soulful symphony.
Fresh off the back of appearing in Reebok’s Not Your Princess campaign, we caught up with the Sydney artist, who made us a playlist of tracks that have been getting her through isolation this year, plus a few picks of local artists she’s got her eye on.
Becca explains: “My ones to watch in the playlist are Planet Vegeta, Blue Belly and Hoodzy. Planet Vegeta are a dope group from Western Syd, making vibrant R&B with the smoothest voices – the typa stuff you wanna pump to lift the mood because it’s a big vibe! They are my favourite Australian artists right now! Blue Belly is a young Sydney/Melbourne band who make soulful sweet tunes and definitely artists to watch over the next few years. Hoodzy is someone that you will definitely know over the next few years. Super confident and the music HITS HARD.”
